About Stephanie: I am married to an amazing guy and we have two amazing kids, ages 3 and 1. We just moved to Minnesota, and this will be our first Christmas card at our new house.

Card she chose: Best Year – Trifold Christmas Photo Card

Why did you choose this card?
The cute images of stars and reindeer on this card appealed to me. I also like that I can match the background to some of the colors in the pictures.

Did you do anything special to personalize it?
When deciding what to put in my card, I want to share, not show off, and I try to do that by showing the fun and closeness of our family—lots of hugs and holding. I like posed shots, but my husband likes candid shots, so I always try to put in a good mix. From a practical side, I want the kids to have personality but still look cute, so with all that in mind it can be hard to find the right photos. I decided to use the single photo at the bottom for our new home, because it doesn’t quite fit in with the others.
